One week from today Maggie and I will be picking up a Penske 16′ truck and tow dolly and start packing all of our belongings into it in preparation to move to New Haven, CT for her to attend Yale University and study to become a Physician Assistant.
After spending one last night friends on Saturday at Chris and Melissa’s wedding, we will push off for New Haven on Sunday in the Penske truck, pulling my Maxima with Maggie in line driving her Saturn Ion (nick-named Tow-to). We expect it to take two and a half to three days to get there, since we’ll be towing all our stuff and the moving truck doesn’t have cruise control, so we’ll probably be taking plenty of breaks to rest legs and to fuel up (I’m not excited about the reported 10 mpg they say the truck will get).
We’ve already started the packing and cleaning and preparing to move, but this next week we’ll be even busier putting the finishing touches on packing and with seeing friends one last time before we go.
I’m excited for this new adventure to begin, it’s been a long time in the making! Stay tuned for updates from our new adventure!
